KAMLOOPS - After 40 years, The Keg is closing its doors in Kamloops.
The restaurant will be ending operations on Aug. 31, 2016, according to a press release. The franchise owners, Mike Culos and Fred Marin, have decided to move out of the restaurant business after 13 years operating the restaurant.
Roughly 60 full- and part-time staff are currently employed at the Kamloops location.
Its current location, a former train station at 500 Lorne St. near Sixth Avenue, is a federally registered heritage building. The building is now up for sale.
The restaurant will be open and operating normally until Aug. 31.
The release says the company will look for other places to open a new restaurant in Kamloops.
